On his first visit to Khartoum since his fledgling nation declared independence, South Sudanese President Salva Kiir agreed with his Sudanese counterpart to hold talks to "reach final solutions" to address continuing differences between their countries.
"My government is ready to discuss and reach final solutions on all outstanding issues - mainly the economy, security, borders and Abyei status," Kiir told reporters Sunday.
"We shall work on all these outstanding issues and make sure we sign a final agreement on all of them as soon as possible."
After years of violent strife and a January referendum paving the way for a new state, South Sudan separated from Sudan in July.
ishkabibble i say
These presidents are to be commended for trying to reach peaceful resolutions without violence.
I think I told you this before, but I *love* that word!
It always puts a smile on my face; thanks for that!
If this could only happen in Spain, Russia and Turkey it would indeed be great. The Basques, Chechens and Kurds both need and deserve their independence too. Countries like Germany and Argentina need to use their diplomatic skills to this end. Unfortunately, almost all of Europe is ruled today by useless bureaucrats who have very few moral values and care only for themselves!!!
Now the above is one of the most sensible posts I've seen here yet and so very true. As far as Europe is concerned, George, you know exactly where it's at! Thank you for the enlightenment.
Three exclamation points again...hm.
Perhaps that is a reference to the Trinity.
There is a pretentious and clumsy writing style know as "monkey with a parasol."
Did that the other day trolling you.....hmmm.....starting to see the pattern too. Odd.
*he* did that the other day. !!! Very interesting.
Occupy wall street protesters have forgotten the golden rule.

Joe Biden and Mitt Romney must understand that stagflation only hurts the unemployed. This is also why leading Republicans are not afraid to call the movement "class warefare".
Sure life has improved exponentially for the super rich, but it has also improved marginally for everyone except the poorest of the poor.
Mitt Romney, Joe Biden and the Republican party all get it. The rich won the class war long ago.
You're kinda like on the wrong story.
This story is about words not war. There is a bit of relevance. Plus one must distrust any article that begins with a final solution.
Don't forget to e-cycle.
Here's Mike McCarthy and Wayne Larabie. They have innate ability.

I hope these two can make it work. The entire African continent has seen enough bloodshed as it is. I wish them all nothing but peace, prosperity and happiness.
Yes, me as Joey Isotta-Fraschini, thank you.
I enjoy writing posts and then answering myself.
